Review: Battle of Will



A Book Published this Year: Battle of Will by Sasha L. Miller



At a memorial service meant to honor the dead and mark the beginning of a truce between Skirfall and Morcia, Ackley spies a figure who does not belong—a mage interrogator whose presence will only cause harm should the Morcians realize who he is and all the people he has tortured. But the problem rapidly grows much worse than that when Ackley realizes his true purpose is assassination of the Morcian crown prince—an assassination Ackley prevents, but at great cost. Banished from his own country, bound magically to the crown prince of his enemies, Ackley is certain of just one thing: whether he can figure out how to break the spell or not, his death is assured.



While it used a common enough basic plot line, "bound by magic leads to a relationship", it did it very well. The character development was good, and there wasn't any magical reason for them to get together. Just growing to like each other. I tore threw it very quickly, being heavily invested in the characters. I feel the world was interesting, the side plots were well done and the pace was good. It did seem like the sex was out of place, not needed at all, but it could be considered a reward for the reader.
